Additional sessions might be scheduled over weekends or holiday periods and students can expect to receive plenty of notice for these. Attending scheduled weekly classes is an important requirement for completion of this programme.

Students are actively involved in a range of learning, teaching and assessment approaches as part of the programme. Such active approaches aim to put students at the centre of their learning so they are involved and engaged in all aspects of assessment and learning. The programme will require active participation in learning activities and engagement with fellow students both individually and collaboratively, as well as working and learning with other students as part of a small group. Learning activities may also occur both within and outside the classroom.

Emphasis is placed on the practice of international relations in different settings and on how events and values are viewed from different global perspectives, including at national, regional and international level.

Learning is also supported by technology. Tutors are increasingly using existing and emerging learning technologies to engage students in e-learning activities. The programme may be facilitated using a variety of media and online tools (My Learning on UniHub, podcasts, wikis, etc.) which could allow students flexible access to a diverse range of online resources, quizzes and learning materials as well as collaborative tools with which they can engage and learn with their peers.

Not confined by the time and space associated with traditional teaching methods students may take part in online discussions and learning activities. By engaging with e-learning students are also developing skills which are essential for their learning and are also highly valued by employers. These include but are not limited to: working flexibly, communication, understanding of IT, team working and creating shared understandings based on quality resources and access to global expertise.
